Benefits staff members are available to answer your questions. To schedule a one-on-one appointment to discuss your benefit options further, please call 509-359-2488.
- Compensatory Hours Earned: all compensatory hours will be cashed out at the end of employment.
- Vacation Cash Out: all accrued, unused vacation hours will be cashed out up to a maximum of 240 hours.
- Sick Leave Cash Out: when employment ends, unused sick leave hours are not cashable except when an employee retires. Upon retirement, unused sick leave accrued will be cashed out at a rate of one hour's pay for each four hours of sick leave.
